Universal Studios executives and Glen A. Larson are also the worst business people who have ever lived.
Whether we're talking about their utter cluelessness in how to bring the property back, or how they blindly surrendered the property to Ronald D. Moore in the 2000s, or how they repeatedly announce new movies in press releases before all of the legalities are worked out among all parties, Universal Studios and Glen A. Larson have taken the urban term "Cluster F**k", and have made it all their own. Routinely and daily "Cluster F**king" in business, should be patented by both Universal Studios and Glen A. Larson.
Years and decades continue to pass with new "Battlestar Galactica" movies being announced, and Universal Studios & Glen A. Larson remain immobile statues with their thumbs permanently lodged up each other's asses.
Universal Studios and Glen A. Larson also have a remarkably destructive habit of never bringing in fresh faces and fresh ideas to possibly tackle a new "Battlestar Galactica" movie. They always rely on the "tried & true" failures of the movie and television industries: Bryan Singer and Ronald D. Moore.
Bryan Singer and Ronald D. Moore are absolute geniuses at either repeatedly getting nothing done with the "Battlestar Galactica" property, or f***ing up the property so bad with such nonsense as "GINO", "Caprica", and "Blood & Chrome", it's amazing that both of them manage to ever find periodic, scarce employment anywhere.
Isn't it basic business common sense to wait until all of the legalities are worked out ahead of time, and wait until the entire filmmaking apparatus is booked well in advance, before you start making announcements in press releases of a "Battlestar Galactica" movie being in production? No such common sense exists with Universal Studios and Glen A. Larson. They repeatedly and prematurely make announcements of a "Battlestar Galactica" movie being in production before any guarantee even exists of anything being firmly in place well in advance. This in itself permanently defines Universal Studios executives and Glen A. Larson as the "worst business people who have ever lived."
Bryan Singer has learned quite well by them and Ronald D. Moore is a catastrophe unto himself. It will be interesting to observe how this "Circus Freak Show" continues to degenerate with the lot of them continuing to be at the helm.
